    Can I Space out my garden vegetables

    I planted my Turnip greens  and Squash too close. Can I dig them up and replant them without hurting them?

    It would be very tricky at this point.  The roots have had time to spread out and are no longer contained to one point.  By transplanting them now, you stand the chance of losing them altogether as you would be digging through their root system.

    I wouldn't suggest it at this point. Turnips can't be successfully moved because they are tubers. Squash is too fragile. I'd plant more turnips from seeds in a well-composted area away from the squash which needs to sprawl. It should grow pretty quickly.
